Founded in 1984, Okabashi is the largest manufacturer of sandals and flip flops in the United States. In an industry where most manufacturing facilities have gone overseas, Okabashi is dedicated to domestic manufacturing.
Since the beginning, Okabashi footwear has been designed for wellness. The footbed (insole) of every sandal is carefully crafted with arch support and massage beads. The placement is based on the study of reflexology, to encourage better circulation to the foot and vital organs.
Okabashi shoes are endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association, and have been for many years. Although many try, no other sandal manufacturer has this endorsement.
Despite a difficult domestic environment in the United States, Okabashi is growing and expanding.
